KERSHAW 1301BW STARTER BLACKWASH SPEEDSAFE ASSISTED PLAIN EDGE FOLDING KNIFE.
The new Starter's design is machined and complex—yet smoothly functional.
The BlackWash finish gives it a rough-and-tumble look, yet the finish isn’t just for looks. The coating provides an extra measure of protection for the metal, and the BlackWash helps hide any additional scratches you put on the knife during normal use
The Starter is equipped with SpeedSafe® assisted opening for fast and easy one-handed opening. It opens neatly with the built-in flipper or thumbstud. A liner lock safely secures the blade open during use, and then closes easily for storage or carry. The all-steel design really shows off the BlackWash finish.
The Starter includes our deep-carry pocketclip so the knife rides comfortably low in the pocket for discreet carry.
May be used on either manual or assisted opening knives. The “flipper” is a protrusion on the back of the blade that the user can pull back on, or flip, in order to move the blade easily out of the handle. SpeedSafe®
Assists you to open any SpeedSafe® knife quickly and easily with a manual push on the thumbstud or pull back on the flipper; built into many Kershaw best sellers. Liner Lock
Locks the blade open during use; one side of the knife’s steel “liner,” the steel plate to which the handle scales are attached, moves into position behind the blade to securely lock it open. Reversible
Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries. Deep Carry
